I have made this using the covers from a vintage ‘Playways Annual’. The spine has been remade using Kraft-tex cover with Liberty Christmas Fabric. Kraft-tex is a great paper cross fabric material. It is as strong as fabric but can be used like paper. There is an eyelet and ribbon tie closure and I have added some pretty antique brass coloured corner protectors.
I have added a tassel to the spine. I’ve have included some Christmas charms as well as beads and buttons.
The cover has been varnished to protect it as much as possible from marks/stains.
The journal pages are a selection of Christmas themed scrapbook paper, vintage book pages, kraft paper, vintage music sheets, mulberry paper and recycled papers. They also have sewn in envelopes and pockets for you to keep photos, tickets, notes etc in.
Some pages have matching fabric tabs and lace pieces sewn onto them to add decoration.
There is plenty of room for this journal to grow with your added photos and ephemera.
This journal was created by me for someone to document their life during Christmas/ holiday/ winter time. I have included patterned papers for you to easily add your photos, tickets, notes etc without having to decorate the page too much. However there are also lots of plainer pages for you to decorate in your own style, with pieces that are special to you and will add lots of memories to your pages for years to come. I have also sewn in envelopes and pockets for you to add extra ephemera. Perfect to make into a memory book that can be brought out year after year.
